The Institute for Immigration Research

Our mission is to refocus the immigration conversation among academics, policy-makers and the public, including the business community and media, by producing and disseminating unbiased and objective, interdisciplinary academic research related to immigrants and immigration to the United States.  

Research conducted by the IIR examines the economic impact of all immigrant groups, with particular emphasis on the economic contributions of immigrant entrepreneurs with high level of education or skills. The IIR concentrates on economic questions while incorporating a wider sociological perspective.

The IIR is joint venture with The Immigrant Learning Center, Inc. (ILC) of Malden, Massachusetts.
